September 19 – National Butterscotch Pudding and Talk Like a Pirate Day

Make some butterscotch pudding and walk around shouting out pirate sayings while you eat it on September 19th. This national day allows for some pirate pudding relaxation. Don’t walk the plank today, mateys. Celebrate it not with the traditional pirate rum – but scotch. Butterscotch.

Did ye know?

  • Butterscotch is speculated to have originated in Scotland because of the “scotch” ending to the word.
  • The largest butterscotch candy created weighed over 3500 pounds in 1996.

Homemade Butterscotch recipe:


  • Sugar – 1 cup
  • Cornstarch – 3/8 cup
  • Salt – ½ teaspoon
  • Milk – 2 cups
  • Vanilla extract – 1 teaspoon
  • Butter – ¼ cups
  • Eggs – 2, beaten


  • Stir the sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in milk and eggs and cook whilst stirring until mixture thickens (about 20 mins). Stir in vanilla and butter. Serve warm or chilled.

To add some pirate themed celebrations to your day, sprinkle the top of your cooled butterscotch pudding with cookie crumbs and add some light sweets to make a treasure map!
